The Negative Space DIY Mani

●   Polish Remover
●   Base coat
●   Nude/beige nail polish
●   Black nail art-specific polish 
●   Top coat 

Step 1. Start with clean, manicured nails. Clean them well to remove any excess oil or dirt.

Step 2. Paint on your base coat.

Step 3. Apply two coats of your nude beige shade. 

Step 4.  Dip a small cleanup brush (or Q-Tips Precision Tips) into polish remover and carefully remove the polish only on the half-moons at the base of the nail.

Step 5. Take your black polish and line the half-moon. Allow five minutes to dry - we don't want to smudge the lines!

Step 6.  Finish with your top coat and don't forget to moisturize your nails with cuticle oil!
